Grinding & Classification Circuits

Adjusting the ball charge to meet the capacity demand will ensure that it is not overgrinding (if it is overgrinding then it has more capacity than needed and the ball charge can be reduced). In order to maintain good efficiency the grinding circuit should maintain a good circulating load (e.g. 250%).

IsaMill Wikipedia

The IsaMill is a stirred-medium grinding mill, in which the grinding medium and the ore being ground are stirred rather than being subjected to the tumbling action of older high-throughput mills (such as ball mills and rod mills). Stirred mills often consist of stirrers mounted on a rotating shaft located along the central axis of the mill.

Closed-circuit systems. The efficiency of the early stages of grinding in a ball mill is much greater than that for formation of ultra-fine particles, so ball mills operate most efficiently by making a coarse product, the fine fractions of this then being separated, and the coarse part being returned to the mill inlet.
